Art Opening at 39th Street Gallery 
5:30pm - 8:00pm

The Brentwood Gallery presents Thirst an installation by artist J. J. McCraken (work pictured above)  and curated by Claire Huschle. The exhibition explores the themes of abundance and scarcity both locally and globally. McCraken’s signature use of clay weaves both finished forms such as bowls and dried clay in its rawest form to produce thought provoking pieces that reflect the current state of global resource inequality.
